A creative Christian group from the U.K. gives us a look at what the story of Jesus Christ's birth might look like through the thoughts of Joseph, Mary, the shepherds, and the wise men by posting their imagined feelings during the nine months leading to the baby Jesus' arrival on Twitter.
Today's news stories of earthquakes, tsunamis, the overthrow of governments, and so on, have all taken on a new dimension thanks to the real-time 140-character and shorter tweets on Twitter. The creators of "Natwivity" are aiming to give the same breaking news feel to the coming of Jesus condensed during the first 25 days of December. It is the second Christmas season in a row for the full project.
The "action" is all tweeted out from one Twitter account with username @Natwivity and the biblical characters doing the texting are identified with hashtag marks. This year, the "voices" of the innkeeper's wife and a "reporter from the Jerusalem Daily" have been added to the mix.
On Friday, during the second day of posts, the Natwivity writers tweeted, "#Mary Dull grey day. This dead end town is driving me crazy. #Nothingeverhappenshere."
Later that day, a tweet states, "#Joseph Really hope Mary pops round today. #MissingMary"
